There was always those thought the races shouldn't mix, but that didn't prevent a lot of race mixing in the Civil War era, nor did it prevent all interracial marriages. It's rather ironic to condemn those who advocated for racially segregated marriage to argue for gender segregated marriage.
<quoted text>
Really....the word "homosexual" wasn't coined until the late 19th century. It's possible they might have been aware of individuals who were, queers, as in odd, or might have been aware of same sex sexual behavior in the abstract historical sense, but I highly doubt from contemporary experience.
well, since i didn't live bck then, sorry, i don't know what their corerct term was for what is in modern times referred to as a homosexual. my apologies. nor do i have the time to go & find that term and use it in the post you put into question.

so, yes, i don't believe that our founding fathers had their heads buried in the sand and were naive enough to have missed or not been aware their neighbors that that were not with members of the opposite sex. if you think they were....well, that's on you. nothing i've read shows me that they were that ignorant (using the dictionary meaning of ignorant not the colloquial definition) as to not be aware of people that were same sex attracted.

You are a dumb shit. I didn't mention anything about Chritianity, so don't make the same mistake all you homosexuals make and that is chage the story suit yourself ok. Grow up
typical self avowed christian that resorts to using profanity and name calling.

you're the one complaining about "morality". i didn't change anything - i pointed out to you the results of your way of thinking and doing things. YOU were the blood of those kids that were bullied for being gay and they committed suicide as a result of that bullying. you must be very proud of yourself and your offspring for accomplishing that.

VV said maybe his son is gay with the intention of hurting him. Not helping him. But put that infamous Big D spin on it and make it homophobia on the victim's part! Fun stuff.

What a hateful thing to say.
So... You show your cards again. You think it's hateful for me to assume that your son might be gay?

Only someone who hates gay people would say something like that.

Obviously I didn't mean it as hateful. I'm a gay man. I don't see a problem if he's gay. To me he would just be another gay man among the millions of other gay men in the world.

But you think of it as hateful.

Would you want him eliminated if he were gay? Would you try to "cure" him? Would you blame his mother for producing a gay son? Maybe you would blame yourself. Maybe you would insist that both you and your wife are to blame--what with your "epigenetic theory" and all.

If he is gay, he has my sympathy.

My folks didn't exactly cotton to the idea of having a gay son, but to have you as a father and be gay--that's not a fate I'd wish on anyone.

By the way your marriage is still only a "mutually sterile, pointlessly opposite gendered half of marriage".

He's mad at you so he declares that your son is just like him. Precious.
I never have understood why people would think that a gay person is hurling an insult at someone by suggesting that someone else is gay.

If I am gay, how is it insulting to say that someone else might also be gay?

Yeah, we all know that's what your sarcastic words communicated.

Just another correction, when you include both genders it's not a 'half'.

Thanks. That's my point. It would be stupid of you to suggest his son is gay as an insult. Which is what you did. Woops! Now I called you stupid too.

Howdy there you redneck, knuckle dragging, crack licking, crotch sniffing. baby butchering perverts!
Personally I think all of you suck in Kalifonia! We need to dig a big hole in Timbuktu and throw your pathetic asses in it. Then restock Kalifonia with normal humans. You know, the kind that aren't Cod Gobblers.

I tried, they donít even come close to comprehending that being gay or being called gay, is not in any way an insult.

They live and breathe hate and spite all day long, and so take offence at things that are not offensive in any way at all.

Hey look folks Frankie has come out of the closet again, he thinks being called gay is an insult

Im glad he wonít be hiding behind his lie of supporting same sex marriage anymore, unless he is even dumber than we think he is. The bar is already pretty low for Frankie, I wouldnít put it past him to try and keep the pretense up anyway, when we all know better. Letís see if he is as stupid as I think he is and argues to keep it up.

You thought if you said his son is gay he wouldn't like it because you assume he is a homophobe. That is an insult in itself.

Admit it and end this pack of lies, you got Big D lying for you and he needs rehab for habitually lying, not encouragement!
